dream catcher, January birthstone This dream catcher is 5 inches from the top of the hoop to the tip of the feather. This is the size that some people hang in their cars. I use only humanely acquired feathers. This white feather is from my bird companion when he molted and naturally shed. The cut glass beads represent the January birthstone. However, this dream catcher is perfect for anyone who likes it. With your purchase, you will receive a poem that I wrote long ago that describes the story of the dream catcher.
